Russian Submarine

NPR's Mike Shuster reports that Russia today asked Britain and Norway for help in rescuing the crew of the submarine Kursk, which has been stranded for days at the bottom of the Barents Sea. Britain has airlifted a mini-sub to Norway, to be sent on to the crash site. The request for foreign help followed repeated, unsuccessful attempts by the Russians to dock a diving bell to the sub, to evacuate the more than 100 men on board.
